Mission Statement

Camp Cocker's mission is to save dogs (primarily Cocker Spaniels) from high kill shelters, rehabilitate them and find them thoroughly screened and well matched up adopters in the hopes that this will be their true forever home!

Description

We are a group of dog loving volunteers who have a special place in our hearts for Cocker Spaniels. Many of our volunteers are also Camp Cocker adopters so don't be shy about asking how you can get involved! Camp Cocker founder, Cathy Stanley, has dedicated herself to running the rescue full time. She looks forward to building up enough volunteers to be able to one day take Camp Cocker from a small little rescue to a more moderate sized rescue that can thrive and expand to help more dogs.

Our primary mission is to rescue dogs from high kill shelters in the Los Angeles region. There are more than thirty high kill shelters that are within a 125 mile radius of Los Angeles County. The amount of dogs in shelters are overwhelming. On any given day there can be between two and seven cockers PER shelter! We have a "worry list" that can have up to sixty cockers on it. These are the dogs in immediate danger of being put to sleep. We can't save them all, we can't even save ten percent of them. But instead of giving up, we are determined to save whom we can, one dog at a time.
